Poems of Sentiment: II. Life
My Quaker Grandmothers
Oliver Huckel (1864–1940)
 
LIKE two little doves in gray
  On the boughs of a greenwood tree,
My two Quaker grandmothers sit
  In my gay genealogy.
 
The Cavalier struts in my heart,        5
  The Puritan tugs at my will,
But the Quaker faces say “Peace,”
  And passion and pride are still.
 
Dear faces of infinite calm,
  Ye have wrought a spell in my blood        10
That maketh the world seem wise
  And sweet with the sunshine of God.
